  1. Ferguson Cops Face Hefty Civil Rights Lawsuit

    A $41.5 million federal lawsuit has been filed against the city of Ferguson, its police department and St. Louis County for civil rights violations against protesters. The current plaintiffs are the “Ferguson Five,” who were arrested, beaten, tear-gassed or shot with rubber bullets during demonstrations against the police shooting of Michael Brown. But Black Lawyers for Justice, which filed the suit, believes that other arrested protesters will join the plaintiffs. The group’s president described authorities as “completely out of control.”
